The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office has launched a new initiative this year to suppress, deter, and thwart street level crime in affected areas. The Deployment of the MCV (Mobile Command Vehicle) has been planned for different locations throughout Rockdale during the year. The MCV is currently located at Salem Road in the Ingles Plaza.

Officials say the objective of the initiative is community outreach, educating the public with local crime trends and preventative practices, and building a solid infrastructure between residents of Rockdale County and local Law Enforcement. Every Division at the Sheriff’s Office will assist in this Street Level Crime Operation. This operation will utilize intelligence led policing to ensure efforts are placed in the areas most in need. Traffic checkpoints, warrant service, eviction setouts, and foot patrol are just some of the enforcement methods that will be used.

Sheriff Eric J. Levett said education will be a key component to this initiative, which includes promoting the “Lock it or Lose it” campaign, preventing “Gangs and Gang Violence,” and reporting suspicious activity through the “See Something, Say Something” app, just to name a few. The goal, he said, is to reach out to business owners, home owners associations and local residents with tactics to protect their property. Each new area of deployment will allow RCSO to coordinate with local schools concerning issues with truancy, gang activity, and promoting our explorer program.
